We may not consciously beware that we are always setting goals, but whether we are setting goals consciously or unconsciously we are still setting goals. Anytime we decide or make a decision to do something we have set a goal to do it. My wife and I have while we were together set a goal to go out every Friday night for a couple of hours for our special time together. We called it our date night. It would be and is very beneficial for every married couple to have a date night even after they are a married couple. Dating is not just for those who are single and looking it is for those who have found their life mate (soul mate) as well. Dating after marriage keeps the relationship fresh and new, as well as it keeps those home fires burning.
YOU ARE AFRAID OF FAILING _ The truth is nobody wants to fail. Failure is painful and distressing both emotionally and financially. We all have failed at one time or the other. While we resolve to learn from our experience to forge ahead, we allow these failures to \'cage\' us and make us \'play it safe\'. Hence, we don\'t maximize our potential to the fullest. YOU ARE AFRAID OF CRITICISM _ These are people that feel that by setting a goal and not achieving that goal, they will receive criticism from others. If you fall into this category, I have a simple solution for you, ensure that your goals are confidential. There is no need to tell anyone your goals. Let your results and achievements speak for you.
